So when we talk about materials, what exactly are we referencing? For starters, there’s the frame of your awning; it can be made of aluminum, wood, stainless steel, and other sturdy materials. But, the most important part of the awning is the fabric that provides the shade and protection you’re looking for.

The materials above offer various qualities and features. Some materials – like canvas – may not be suited to the environment you live in. In fact, it is important that you do your due diligence before purchasing an awning and figure out which material is best for your home. So what does that mean?
To start off, where you live is important when it comes to the type of material you want for your awning. For example, if you live in a rainy area then you probably don’t want to use a cotton material. Why? Because it can retain water and it’s not exactly waterproof. If you live in a sunny area you probably also don’t want to use a fabric that isn’t going to provide you UV ray protection or will fall apart under the harsh conditions of the sun.
